Thank you for a memorable stay in San Diego! It was my first time (my husband had been there before) to enjoy the unique characteristics of San Diego. We were tired after driving six hours from Phoenix the first night, so we ate in the Bay Club restaurant for dinner. Oh, my! We both got the seafood combo dish--incredibly fresh, melt-in-your-mouth delicious! And such a reasonable price. Our server was wonderful. She took the time (even though she had several others to serve) to give us tips on what to see, where to park, etc. Thanks to her tips, we enjoyed a walk along the white sand beach to the historic Hotel Del Coronado, toured the Embarcadero including the Star of India tall ship, and even squeezed in a trip to the Point Loma Lighthouse.
The rooms were clean and comfortable--nothing too fancy, but pretty nice for the price. The hotel is a bit older, a bit worn around the edges, but has character. Bathrooms are a bit small and the construction noise in the morning from the house being built next door was unexpected, but not a huge inconvenience. The Christmas lights on the ships in the Bay added a touch of sparkle in the evenings. And free breakfast in the mornings was convenient although crowded (the servers work so hard...and not all the customers are on their best behavior). I wouldn't blame the hotel for charging for all that food--it might weed out the individuals who think it's cute to feed the seagulls out the door or the cell phone talkers blocking the poor servers from doing their job...sheesh!) Anyway...the staff was tremendously helpful, courteous, and out-of-their-way informative on local attractions.
We really enjoyed the Bay Club and would certainly stay there again!
